Hence his call to the awareness but above all to no longer listen to the sirens to the civil disobedience launched by “unscrupulous people who reside abroad“, we read in Le Messager of Wednesday 3 May 2017. He therefore urges workers not to “put their talents to the service of division and destruction. I appeal to others to remobilize and resume service, the children to return to school, the economic operators who have closed their businesses to reopen them and that the activities resume definitively in the region of the Northwest “The Governor exhorts.
